    im going to bump this thread to make a correction as i know it is looked at frequently due to searches. The 02-04 Drain plug is NOT a 17mm. It is a 21mm.

    no problem, i am also going to add to this a warning to be careful and not make a mistake i did. While refilling the trans it is very easy to overfil the fill tube which unless your funnel is the perfect size can cause some trans fluid to leak out. This isnt a huge deal until you look under the car to check for leaks and see the small puddle. It can easily seem that the leak is coming from the drain plug. Overall though a very good writeup and pretty simple change.

    if the trans is completely dry, its 10 qts for the 4eat. but if you just drain the oil pan, its about 5 qts. the torque converter stores the othe 5 qts. i found this out the hard way lol.

    hold up....so removing the intercooler is NECESSARY to get to the trans dipstick? if not, why the F would you remove the intercooler??

    Replaced Trans and rear Diff at 25,000 with Scotty's Cocktail.

    Now replaced that with this at 50,000. Extra-S, Thank you 42 Autosport!

    ^ Thanks! The builder installed the wrong color counter tops in our house when we bought it. They changed them out and left the gray one so I built a workbench with it. Tool box fits perfect in where the sink was.

    The transmission fluid is cOnsidered warm after the car has traveled 15 freeway miles. Go straight home then check it.
